The Hap­pi­ness Curve

Jonathan Rauch (BLOOMS­BURY)

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Rd Recommends -

This is a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into why our lives are pre-des­tined to get bet­ter as we age. Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced his own mid-life slump, de­spite per­sonal and ca­reer suc­cess, Rauch be­gan re­search­ing hap­pi­ness and has cre­ated a com­pelling case. He backs up his per­sonal story with sta­tis­tics and stud­ies and ex­plains why life tends to feel bet­ter af­ter 50. The ‘hap­pi­ness curve’ is a nat­u­ral de­cline in op­ti­mism which thank­fully picks up again. Learn­ing to em­brace this stage of life is key.
